Chelsea’s first season game was against Swansea. They gained one point from an action-packed 2-2 draw!
Oscar scored the first goal for the Blues in the 23rd minute. This was soon cancelled out by A.Ayew’s goal in the 29th. At such an early stage, the small teams have just the same amount of, or even more, energy as the big clubs!
Just a minute later, the efforts of Swansea were tarnished. Fernandez scored an own goal to put Chelsea back in the lead! However, this was soon disrupted again as Courtois, the Chelsea goalkeeper, received a red card. Gomis converted a penalty to balance the scoreline once more.
Being faced with a red card is never the best way to start. Chelsea were lucky enough to still grasp a single point from the match. We can only hope that this does not set the tone for the rest of the season.
